This book is simple to read and understand. It is broken up into units which have exercises, information and interesting pieces to play. I tried using the book without the CD and found it difficult. Using the CD along-side the book allows you to listen to the exercises,hear new notes and the best part is playing along to either piano accompaniament or with another sax.
I have recommended this to several other adult students who have enjoyed working through it.
has very useful information about fingering, notes and musical terms. As an experienced musician, I found some of the pieces a bit tedious and the frequency of play a duet with your teacher a bit irritating since, I guess like lots of other learners, the luxury of being able to afford tuition time to play along is beyond my means!
